Being a publican in these strange times is no easy task and we caught up with drinks consultant Andy Gemmell and owner of Modern Scottish pub, The Gate to find out how he’s pivoting his business.
‘Create My Cocktail’ Generator & Delivery Service Launches In Glasgow
Bartenders at The Gate are used to developing new cocktails creations on the spot for their guests when they visit their bar, and with their new ‘Create My Cocktail’ Glasgow can now enjoy their favourite cocktails from the comfort of their home.
The Gate’s new bespoke cocktail service, ‘Create My Cocktail’ is a cocktail delivery and collection service with one unique difference, they create a cocktail totally bespoke to you based on flavours you love.
Developed after the team at The Gate looked at what their guests miss most about going out to a great cocktail bar. They found that the conversation between the bartender and that creative process of them finding out what you like and serving up a unique drink came out top.
Recreating that bar experience at home, the process is fun and easy-to-use. Simply fill out five questions on their online ‘Create My Cocktail’ generator, and they will be able to work out what style and flavours to use to create your own bespoke cocktail recipe. All drinks can be then delivered locally or collected from the Gate.
If you’re looking for something more familiar, we’ve created a collection of favourite drinks and house specials, alongside a cocktail party package that includes a premium battle of spirit, party punch and access to fun virtual tastings to get the party started.
Classic drinks on offer include refreshing daiquiris and pink cosmopolitans, a gin lover’s clover club to smoky whisky penicillin.
All The Gate’s cocktails are created on-site and delivered in reusable cocktail pouches with a cocktail garnish. All drinks come with instructions on how best to enjoy at home and guests can also access virtual demos on drinks. Cocktails start from £7, with a minimum of 2 cocktails required for collection and a minimum of four for free delivery. Extra measures have been put in place to ensure strict guidelines are in place that adheres to government advice.
